Goat Rope Spur Trail (1.5 mi/2.4 km)

Rating: Difficult (primitive route, very steep climbs)
Hiking Time: 1.5 hours to summit (3160 feet)
Elevation Gain: 1960 ft.

Trailhead Access: Lagoon Trail, 2 miles from ranger station.

Camping: No developed campsites; backcountry camping above timberline (no campfires)
Water Availability: None, seasonal snowfields

Trail Description: This short, steep, unmaintained route begins at the highest point on the Lagoon Trail and leads hikers up to alpine areas. Rock cairns mark the trail to an open alpine ridge, where the trail gently climbs to a summit that has some of the finest views anywhere of Kachemak country. This summit rivals Poot Peak for its views, without the hazardous rocky climbs. Travel beyond the 3160 foot summit is difficult. Please exercise foresight and caution.
